Icanrace,I don't mean to sound harsh,but what does "just decided to come off it" mean?Anyone that has dealt with this for a while will tell you,they don't "just decide" anything.If you're having unpleasant side effects,such as nausea,speak to your doc.If you're feeling okay,but worried about your liver(which is an issue with Asacol),get a regular LFT test(via blood sample).
I don't mean to sound contemptuous,but you're way too early in the game to "just decide" anything!As for not believing you need pills for the rest of your life,it's a mute point.Do you want sound state of mind and body,or a need for the toilet the majority of the time?
To clarify furthermore;I've been on and off Asacol for several years,of my own accord.It's ALWAYS a bad idea,the ***** comes back to bite me in the ass(pun intended!).If you are in remission using Asacol and aren't having any nasty side effects,DON"T STOP!It's really that simple
